In September of 2014 BE FORWARD took part in sponsoring a local Malawi football team in their tournament coined the, ‘BE FORWARD Football Bonanza’. The company donated t-shirts and supplied a specially designed trophy to award the winning team! A sponsorship request by Japan’s Ambassador Reuben Ngwenya of Malawi started the negotiations which ultimately led to the formation of the BE FORWARD WANDERERS FOOTBALL CLUB.
On March 22nd, 2015 BE FORWARD made an official contract with the Wanderers Football Club. For the first time ever an African football club has a Japanese name. The one year contract is based on the assumption that automatic renewals will be made and the company’s support will be ongoing. The contract agreed to modify the team name to the BE FORWARD WANDERERS. In addition BE FORWARD will continue to support the community and a youth football team; giving hopes and dreams to the children of Malawi.
Partnered with BE FORWARD, Japan’s leading pre-owned car exporter, The BE FORWARD WANDERERS look forward to bringing a renewed vigor to the field this season.
